AbstractModern storm surge models to predict hurricane water levels have gone in two opposite directions: (1) Low resolution, fast, models that may be run thousands of times as a storm approaches land; and (2) High resolution, more accurate, models that are largely used for planning and hindcasts, and are too slow for real-time ensemble forecasts. Differences in predictions between the two types of models are particularly large over flooded ground, which is most important for human activities.
